Sen. Ellis on his vote against SB 11, the “campus carry” bill


(Austin, TX) // Senator Rodney Ellis (D-Houston) releases the following statement regarding today’s passage of Senate Bill 11, the “campus carry” bill:

“As I’ve said before, this bill is a reflection of misplaced priorities,” said Senator Ellis. “Instead of arming students with guns, we should be arming them with 21st century educational opportunities, better paying jobs and fairer wages, and access to quality, affordable health care.”

Senator Ellis continued: “This is not a constitutional issue. This is an issue of ensuring our young people have a safe place of higher learning as they grow from childhood to adulthood.”
